Making the most of the NDIS: short workshops Hervey Bay
February 10, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Workshop series overview
The National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) is a new way of supporting people with a disability that is starting soon in Queensland.
These sessions are part of a series of short workshops that provide information about the NDIS and help people to think about how they can best use the opportunities offered by the new scheme.
You can register for one, some or all of the workshops in the series. People who have attended a Taking Charge of Change workshop are welcome to attend. Places are limited.
There will be two short sessions going for 2.5 hours each. People can register to attend one session or both.
9:00am – 11:30am The NDIS – Understanding Supports
People who have attended a Getting Informed session or Taking Charge of Change workshop can start to identify the funded supports needed to complement and strengthen the informal, community and mainstream supports that help create and sustain a good life. How can you blend funded NDIS support with natural supports that come from family, friends and community?
12:30pm – 3:00pm The NDIS – Getting Informed
This workshop provides information about the why, when and how of the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) in Queensland, and things you can do now to get ready.
A light lunch will be provided for people who register for both sessions.
